Try It Again,With Feeling 


Mr. Jesus Silva, artist-musician 
in residence, led the class mem- 
bers in applause as a young man 
nodded his head to indicate he 
was ready to begin his perform- 
ance. The man sat upright and 
tense before Silva, who was a 
protege of famed Andres Segovia, 
and his peers at the center of the 
Music Center stage. 

As the student's third selection 
ended, the master classical 
guitarist again led the applause. 
Silva then walked over to the 
stage and very quietly asked 
the student to play a section of 
the first piece. "Yes sir," was the 
response, and the student's 
fingers seemed to blur as the 
music reached a crescendo. Silva 
quietly suggested the student 
shift his weight, move his wrist 
slightly to the left and play the 
section again, this time allowing 
each note to be heard, yet glide 
into the next note. "The music 
must flow as if a wave. It must 
have feeling. It is not just notes; 
make it expressive," coached 
Silva as he indicated a "wave" 
motion with his hand. 

After Silva commented on the 
rest of the performance and com- 
plimented the student on his 
practice sessions, another student 
walked center stage. 

Again, applause preceeded and 
followed the performance. 

"Make it simple. You're work- 
ing too hard," said Silva. "Try it 
again, only try to feel what the 
composer was feeling. Let the 
music move you, then it will 
move others. It must become a 
part of you, and change a little 
each time you play." 

Later, Silva explained why 
feeling is so important in music. 
"We all feel sad. Yet, we don't 

feel sad the same way all the time. 
We are also happy, but sometimes 
happier than others. We feel in 
degrees. The musician must trans- 
fer the proper feeling to the 
audience, to make them feel what 
the composer wanted to convey." 

At another music session, Mr. 
Kenneth Bowles, director of the 
University Community Chorale, 
pressured the singers to recall the 
pitch, mark their scores properly, 
sit up straight, listen and work. 
Over and over he stressed that 
the singers should feel as Verdi 
did when he wrote the Requiem. 

Bowles, an instructor in the 
Department of Music, was one of 
the faculty members who volun- 
teered to assist a graduate student 
project. The student, Nicholas 
Armstrong, expressed a desire to 
conduct the Requiem and arranged 
for over 90 musicians from the 
Richmond area and North 
Carolina and Washington, D.C. to 
perform the piece. He also set up 
the concert location and made all 
the other preparations. Bowles 
said, 'Tt's something Nick wanted 
to do. Faculty are just helping him 
out. It's his project and includes 
everything from interpretation 
down to arranging the lights." 

Bowles was rehearsing the 
chorale based on score interpreta- 
tions by Armstrong and would 
relinquish his role as conductor 
for the final rehearsals and per- 

Mr. Franhsek Smetana, asso- 
ciate professor of music, agreed 
that students must be involved in 
their work, but they must have 
emotion and project feelings. The 
man known as the "Czech Casals" 
also noted, "I have a reputation 
for being a very serious teacher. I 

do not tolerate sloppiness or 
mediocrity — when students 
realize this, they work very hard, 
which is the way it is supposed to 
be." He paused for emphasis. 
"Many people feel music is a 'take 
it easy program;' it's not — the 
same way as life. You do not 
solve problems, any problems, 
easily. I have played for 56 years; 
still I will never finish learning." 

"Learning is a painful experi- 
ence," says Mr. William Kidd, 
graduate student and director of 
the New Music Ensemble. "New 
music, or avant-garde music, is 
exhausting. For students it means 
slipping out of a mold, and for 
the audience it means either 
loving it or hating it." According 
to Kidd, the first time a student 
tries this music, with its bizarre 
musical scores and instruments, 
the student is inhibited; then, as 
the newness wears off, the 
student becomes comfortable. 

Kidd takes himself and this 
music seriously. He believes it is 
an extension of existing music and 
noted that at one time "classical" 
composers did not accept a new 
instrument — the piano. 

In some ways, the New Music 
Ensemble's concerts may reflect 
ancient musical productions more 
than today's classical music per- 
formances, because of the blend- 
ing of the musical and the drama- 
tic. For instance, the musicians 
may wear masks or props are 
used to help convey the message. 

"No sound is used just to 
present an unusual effect," said 
Kidd. "This even includes when 
the percussionist blows up a 
paper bag and pops it. The timing 
is crucial to the mood the com- 
poser and conductor wish to 
convey. Even the sound of the 
bag crinkling as it's blown up is 

scored into the piece." 

Then, there are instruments 
that have no sound of their own, 
according to Dr. Loran Carrier, 
associate professor of music. 
"Electronic music isn't a 'pack- 
aged instrument.' The artist 
makes it sound any way at all, 
and it can duplicate even specific 
sounds, such as the clarinet. But it 
is the assembling of the sounds 
that make the work substantive." 

He added that the electronic 
music program, attracts students 
from both east and west 
campuses. This is because 
"making music is not limited to 
an elite group. But the person 
who wants to be a professional 
musician must practice as hard 
as any person in another 

"It's kind of like a sport," said 
Mrs. Melissa Marrion, assistant 
professor of music, "It has rules. 
You get better as you work and 
discipline yourself. And any per- 
son who takes music lessons 
learns to appreciate how hard it is 
to be a good musician." The best 
thing about music, for Marrion, a 
pianist, is that it "recreates life." 
She stated, "Music is investigat- 
ing, experimenting, learning and 
growing. It is never a dead-end, 
closed experience. It gives you 
skills that can be used for the rest 
of your life." 

"We all have an innate leaning 
toward music, as do primitive 
people, because it enriches our 
lives," said Mr. L. Wayne Batty, 
voice teacher and professor of 
music. "It goes hand and hand 
with art and literature. Music is a 
time art and is sensitive to the 
mood of the era in which it was 

Composer, recording artist and 
violinist, Alan Blank, associate 
professor of music, stated, "Music 
is a unique way to experience 
things that are beyond us — at 
higher levels of insight, and it is a 
tool for developing the mind." 
For him life and music are cou- 
pled, since ideas for music come 
from all the senses — the human 
experiences. "It is the way people 
sense the world. They hear 
sounds that are suggestive, read 
poetry or stories, visualize a per- 
son or feel a temperament and 

then draw these with sound to 
make music." 

"Music was always 'just music' 
until the 1900s," said Bowles. 
Music used to be written for 
church or social occasions, but 
with the advent of parlor music, 
we now have popular music and 
'classical' music. 

"Before music was popularized, 
people had to put forth an effort 
to hear it; now it's available all the 
time, and is taken for granted. 
Yet, it still gives tension, excite- 
ment and repose in sound and 
provides insight into the com- 
poser and into our emotions." 

Bowles believes that singing, 
such as with the University 
Community Chorale, motivates 
people. "You become part of the 
whole, and the whole is much 
greater than the sum of its parts." 
According to Bowles, an esprit de 
corps builds — people smile at one 
another, they work out problems 
and they enjoy. 

"Success is the key. People, 
especially children, must never 
feel defeated when reaching to- 
ward a goal. Faculty must make 
the complex simple," emphasized 

In many classes the faculty have 
the students write, perform and 
critique, with students offered 
practical problems to solve. "Most 
people, including new students, 
don't understand what it takes to 
be a performer. It takes muscle 
tone, stamina and total involve- 
ment. The performer must inter- 
pret the piece, project that in- 
terpretation and overcome 
equipment or facility problems," 
said Blank. "They must also know 
how to create a fat sound, a thin 
sound, a warm sound and a cool 
sound and remain sensitive to the 
style of the piece." 

According to Blank, each stu- 
dent has a unique talent; there- 
fore, he cannot have a curriculum 
which all students follow. He said 
that music, like life, is never 
isolated. It is evolving everyday as 
times change. 

Another faculty member, Mr. 
Donald Bick, assistant professor 
of music and percussionist, stated 
that students sometimes take 
courses a second time, because 

they want to learn more and the 
course topics vary from session to 

"New students soon learn that 
faculty understand problems 
which occur during a perform- 
ance. They learn faculty have had 
to deal with conductors who 
couldn't conduct or equipment 
that fell apart, and they learn that 
performers must develop a sense 
of humor about these little 
things," said Bick. 

The Department of Music fac- 
ulty are known as a performing 
faculty and are known by their 
performance credentials to other 
musicians. Many students com- 
mented that faculty are not pre- 
tentious because of these per- 
formance backgrounds. "Faculty 
know they are good at what they 
do, so they don't have to lecture; 
instead, they discuss and share 
with us," said a recent graduate, 
Annette Tinsley. 

According to the faculty, the 
students are special because they 
volunteer to attend extra practice 
sessions, reserve music rooms for 
additional sectional practice and 
make music in their spare time as 
members of rock 'n' roU, blue 
grass or other bands. The faculty 
members also believe that because 
of this enthusiasm for music, 
many of the department's en- 
sembles are "the best in the 
state" and "the finest in the 
Southeast. "The students also have 
been winning competitions, with 
four out of five possible state-wide 
competitions, last year, being won 
by VCU students. 

Extra efforts pay off, according 
to Mr. Douglas Richards, instructor 
and director of the jazz ensem- 
bles. "The students learn to listen 
to themes and variations on these 
themes, and to create new 
melodies on top of old harmonies. 
Making music is a life-long proc- 
ess, and we [the faculty] hope 
that students get turned on to 
learning. The faculty tries to 
convey a zest for life, music and 

"Don't get worried about your 
mistakes," said graduate student 
Mr. John Patv'kula as he talked about 
his teaching of the classical guitar. 
"Congratulate vourself because 

you're human, and don't get 
hung up on being perfect. Listen 
for the nuances in the music; 
listen to your music as you play. 
Stop occasionally and try to figure 
out your problems — the notes 
may not be clear in your mind or 
you might be tight. But always 
keep a feel for the music." 
Patykula believes VCU students 
are prepared for careers in music 
because they practice toward the 
goal of performing. "Performing 
is putting the pot in the fire, with 
practice being the molding. What 
they practice for is performance; 
therefore, they can be expressive 
with the music." He continued, 
"We not only encourage this but 
are their examples. We practice 
what we preach and assist stu- 
dents in putting on perform- 

Dr. Dika Newlin, professor, 
musicologist and internationally 
known expert on Schoenberg, 
noted that faculty continue to 
show students, "See what I do; 
this is fun." She continued, "We 
stimulate the student, so that they 
want to make music, too." 

Some faculty feel that people 
initially become interested in 
music because of the techniques 
involved. Bick explained, "Some 
people may watch dancers be- 
cause of the technical details, like 
the dancer's physical ability; then 
they grow to understand dancing 
emotionally." Bick continued, 
"People must use their brains 
somehow or let them go dead, but 

leisure time can be used in a rich 
way that is emotionally satisfying. 
People often put down these 
emotions, so many people have 
few, if any, emotional outlets. The 
arts fill this gap and allow people 
emotional release." 

The music faculty is unanimous 
in agreeing that educational expe- 
riences should include the arts. 
"This allows a person to make 
free choices. The person has had 
the experience, and art has not 
been shut out of their life," said 

One of the music education 
coordinators Mrs. Martha Giles 
concurred, "A child understands 
the arts intuitively, but not the vo- 
cabulary. Music teachers usually 
just have the kids sing songs, but 
the children may not relate to that 
activity. The children need to 
know why that song exists and 
why there is music. Also, even 
elementary school students need 
to be allowed to create and share 
their creations. The teacher then 
builds the necessary vocabulary 
on the child's musical activities. In 
this way, the creative process will 
always be with the child, no 
matter what he decides to do later 
in life." 

She, as the other faculty, be- 
lieves that the music teacher 
"must be a positive influence on 
children's lives — reinforce the 
successes and become dissatisfied 
with the chOdren if they are not 
doing their best." This, they 
believe, helps the students to be 
disciplined, to work with others 

and to have a good opinion of 

Again the faculty seem to prac- 
tice what they preach. According 
to Newlin, faculty members take 
turns putting on a reception after 
every student recital. "It's some- 
thing that's done to say, 'Hey! 
"You did a good job, and we're 
proud,' " says Newlin. 

Faculty recitals are also a prior- 
ity, according to Dr. Jack M. 
Jarrett, associate professor and 
director of the symphony bands. 
"Groups foster an environment 
which stimulates faculty coopera- 
tion and the growth of the indi- 
vidual musicians," said Jarrett, 
who is also assistant conductor of 
the Richmond Symphony. He 
emphasized that this working 
together causes "a person to lose 
one's self" and mesh with others 
for the good of the performance. 
This even relates to a subtle 
change of tempo, because of the 
size of the concert hall. 

The department started the 
Community Music School in 1971 
to meet the needs of people who 
were waiting for music lessons. 
According to Mrs. Virginia Rouse, 
coordinator of the school, the 
school now has over 600 students, 
who range from SVa to 83 years of 
age. "We try not to waste any- 
one's time or money," said 
Rouse. "If they do not need 
teacher assistance, such as with 
playing the harmonica, we 
suggest they take only a few 
introductory lessons." Faculty, 
students and community people 
give lessons through the school, 
but Rouse stressed that each 
instructor must be competent and 
work "toward the growth of the 
student, whether it be a child or 
an adult." 

The school also has its own 
bands and vocal groups and 
currently has the goal to begin a 
vocal ensemble for adults who 
have never sung in a group. 

According to the former de- 
partment chairman, Mr. Ronald 
Thomas, and the new chairman, 
Dr. Richard Koehler, the Depart- 
ment of Music, as a whole, has a 
goal — to be viewed as the finest in 
this state and surrounding states.

Dr. Joseph V. Boi/kin, Jr., and "friend. 

A Door is Opened 

Egyptians used incantations 
and a mixture of gum, goat's milk 
and milk from a woman who had 
given birth to a son. In the sixth 
and fifth centuries B.C., Chinese 
used tinctures and extracts of tea 
leaves. Hippocrates, in 430 B.C., 
used vinegar soaked dressings. 
And ancient Romans used, 
among other things, exposure to 
air. The ninth century brought 
Arabic physicians who used cold 
water treatments. 

Most of these medical prepa- 
rations are not far afield from 
those used in this century for 
burn treatment — tannic acid (tea 

leaves), petrolatum gauze 
dressings, exposure and cold 

But according to Dr. Joseph V. 
Boykin, Jr., surgical resident, 
"Nobody really understood what 
went on, what happened when 
somebody received a burn," and 
treatment still differs from physi- 
cian to physician. 

Boykin became interested in 
burn treatment as a general 
surgery resident at MCV, and this 
interest led to his desire to learn 
about the microcirculatory system 
of the skin, on which "the skin is 
totally reliant for life support." 

A body responds to a hot 

environment by first sweating. In 
a tropical area, for example, a 
person can lost 10 liters of water 
in 24 hours. This exposure to heat 
alters the body's circulation with 
the purpose being to maintain the 
body's core temperature. If locally 
applied heat is extreme, such as 
from spilled boiling water, even 
for a short duration, the body's 
compensatory mechanisms are 
overwhelmed and local tissue is 
destroyed. This leads to the cir- 
culatory system being destroyed 
and also to major changes in body 
functions. All of these factors 
combine to place the patient

into a warm hydrotherapy hath, which 
helps remove the dead skin. 

under more stress and affect the 
patient's ability to survive. 

The first life threatening situa- 
tion for the burn patient, accord- 
ing to Boykin, is hypotension, 
which is a decrease in blood 
pressure usually caused by a loss 
in blood volume. This occurs 
because the blood vessels "leak" 
plasma, and the patient dies of 
"burn shock" if massive amounts 
of fluids are not administered. 

To look at burn reactions, 
Boykin, with the help of Dr. 
Ronald N. Pittman, associate pro- 
fessor of physiology, and Dr. Elof 
Eriksson, senior fellow in plastic 
surgery, chose a "superior 
model" — a hairless mouse with 
large, almost transparent ears. 
Each mouse was placed in a 
chamber where its ear could be 
scalded with hot water and the 
reaction observed under a micro- 

The burn to the mouse resulted 
in increased tissue fluid accumula- 
tion not only in the injured ear, 
but also in other non-injured 
parts of the body. "The reason for 
this," Boykin hypothesized, "was 
that the burn released or activated 

substances which caused the blood 
vessels to leak." Eventually he 
discovered that the two most 
active chemicals released by the 
burn — histamine and 
bradykinin — were inhibited when 
the burn was treated with cold 
water. It is this inhibited action 
which appears to stop pain, and 
perhaps prevents the onset of 
burn shock by reducing fluid loss. 

Boykin admits, "The findings 
were exciting. They opened a 
door few people have had the 
opportunity to look through." 
What he found was an extraordi- 
nary correlation. Cold water inhib- 
ited the chemical reactions 100 
percent of the time. "It was 
outstanding. Research confirmed 
the instinct to soak a burn in cold 
water," says Boykin. "Now more 
research has to be done to deter- 
mine if cold water might do harm 
under certain circumstances." 

He then found one drug, 
cimetidine, which "mimicks" the 
effects of the cold water treat- 
ment. "The use of cimetidine, 
probably combined with other 
anti-histamine drugs, might be- 

come standard treatment for se- 
verely burned patients," says 

Each year over 100,000 people 
in the United States are hos- 
pitalized due to severe burns, 
with some people, mostly elderly 
or children, having problems ac- 
cepting the massive doses of 
fluids needed to prevent burn 
shock. "These drugs might al- 
leviate this major obstacle in 
treating these burn victims," savs 

The initial treatment of a person 
at the scene of a burn accident is 
extremely important in minimiz- 
ing the extent of the injurs- and in 
reducing complications that may 
be significant. This is true even 
with a relativelv small burn. 

The ob\aous first step is put out 
the fire or remove the heat source, 
because the amount of injurs' is 
proportional to the size of flame, 
intensity of heat and duration of

in cold water — never ice — to cover 
the victim. 

"The rescue squad makes a 
determination as to the serious- 
ness of a burn injury, and if the 
burn is not severe the person is 
taken to the nearest hospital," 
says Judy Rossman, R.N. and 
head nurse of the MCV burn unit. 
"If a patient needs to be admitted 
he is brought to MCV or one of 
the burn units in Charlottesville 
or Norfolk." 

At MCV 200 to 225 burn pa- 
tients are admitted to the 12-bed 
burn unit each year, and another 
1,000 persons are treated on an 
outpatient basis. 

According to Dr. Boyd W. 
Haynes, chairman of the Division 
of Trauma Surgery and director of 
the burn unit, most burns can be 
avoided. "The most common in- 
juries occur in the kitchen. Re- 
cently, wood stove injuries have 
increased because users have 
difficulty starting the fire and 
reach for kerosene or gasoline," 
says Haynes. 

The burn center uses two basic 
treatments in wound therapy — 
the warm hydrotherapy bath. 

which cleanses the wound, and 
an anh-bacterial cream, which is 
applied to the wound's surface. If 
the wound is large and deep, skin 
grafting is used to produce heal- 
ing. For this procedure, a three 
inch strip of skin is peeled from a 
part of the body not affected by 
the burn. This strip is applied to 
and heals the burn; the donor

Factors other than skin damage

The unit's staff includes 
Haynes, as attending surgeon, 
two surgical residents, burn 
nurses, plus numerous "spe- 
cialty" personnel and consultants. 
According to Haynes, the team 

approach to treating patients is 
used, with this team including 
pediatric and psychiatric nurses, 
physical and occupational 
therapists, social workers, dieti- 
tians, school teachers, vocational 
rehabilitation specialists, chap- 
lains and relatives. 

"We act as a team," says 
Rossman, "and help families af- 
fected by a severe burn injury. 
These families of victims are 
encouraged to join a support 
group where they learn the unit 
routine; discuss problems, fears 
and concerns; and learn burn care 
for the patient at home." "What 
we do is treat the patient to 
complete recovery, functionally, 
cosmetically and emotionally," 
says Haynes. "Such treatment 
extends over a period of years; 
however, the average length of 
stay in the hospital is six to eight 

"It has only been 30 years since 
modern burn therapy has come

your work counts." S 

It's ChowTime 

"How would you like to eat 
in a restaurant, even the best 
restaurant in town, for 690 meals 
in a row?" is the question William 
Gurr, director of food services, 
asks himself. 

Gurr and his staff of 44 are 
faced with just such a challenge 
and work to break the monotony 
usually associated with institu- 
tional food service. 

The food service operation is 
called "Mama Hibbs" by students 
on west campus, and this affec- 
tionate name reflects the changes 
that have taken place in the food 
service operation during the past 
few years and also the student 
involvement in the operation. 

In reality, "Mama Hibbs" is 
Saga Corporation, a California 
based operation, which 
specializes in food services. 

The educational division of 
Saga is its largest and has con- 
tracts with over 385 schools. In 
addition, the company provides 
food services to over 200 busi- 
nesses, 250 hospitals and nursing 
homes and 300 restaurants. 

Saga's contract with the univer- 
sity calls for the provision of all 
food services. This includes the 
student board program and ca- 
tering everything from a picnic for 
twenty to a formal, sit-down 
dinner for 500. 

Student involvement starts with 
students working in the clean up 
operation and continues to stu- 
dents working in management 
positions. According to Gurr, the 
seven student managers are "the 
backbone of the organization." It 
is their responsibility to insure 
that the food line service, dining 
hall preparations and clean up 
activities all run smoothly, with 
some of the managers responsible 
for catering activities. In order to 
handle their responsibilities, these 
managers supervise 180 to 200 
students each week. "As student 
managers, they schedule, train, 
supervise and hire and, if neces- 
sary, fire their fellow students," 
says Gurr. 

Gurr and his staff, including 
five managers, handle the meal 
planning, purchasing and food 

According to Angle Fritz, stu- 
dent manager in the catering 
section, she tells students how to 
set a proper table, shows how 
guests should be served and or- 
chestrates the catering activity. 
Fritz is responsible for the Board 
of Visitors meals and has super- 
vised catering for up to eighty 
people. "I really enjoy working 
here," she says. "I do have to do 
my job. There's no goofing off, 
but there's an easy going atmos- 

Gurr is extremely proud that 65 
percent of Saga's total manage- 
ment force were once student 
managers. Gurr says, "It's a treat 
when I see students decide to 
make food service a career, espe- 
cially if they change their career 
goals to stay with us." 

One reason the students stay, 
according to Gurr, is that there 
is personal satisfaction in 
providing food services. He says, 
"It's a challenge to prepare dishes 
students will enjoy, and more of 
a challenge to make the dining 
hall a place where students can 
relax. We try to make both of 
these our goal." 

Part of the challenge, according 
to Chuck Waterbury, east cam- 
pus manager, is "we hear stu- 
dents say, 'It's not like mother 
made it.' What students don't 
realize is that there are over two 
dozen recipes for spaghetti sauce, 
each of which is good, and yet, 
none tastes like mother made it." 
He continues, "We all have pre- 
conceived ideas about food, so 
those of us in food service have 
learned that we can't please 
everybody." Gurr adds, "Not 
everyone likes steak, so other 
entrees must be prepared to ac- 
company the once-a-week top 
sirloin dinner. This problem is 


compounded, since most people 
do not like to try new foods. 
Therefore," Gurr says, "any addi- 
tions to the menu must be extra 
pleasing to the eye. Then we 
watch the students' choices and 
make a decision as to whether we 
can make menu changes." Ac- 
cording to David Dobransky, di- 
rector of food services operations, 
students love pizza and ham- 
burgers. He notes, however, that 
the food service must be con- 
cerned about nutritional needs. 
Therefore, the staff has to vary 
menus and uses recipes pre- 
pared by dietitians. 

"We have to be concerned 
about attitudes toward the food 
service," says Gurr, as he picks 
up a food service suggestion card. 
The cards, he explains, are avail- 
able in the dining halls and are 
used by students to make sugges- 
tions or give compliments. "We 
even accept suggestions on nap- 
kins," notes Gurr. The staff an- 
swers each student by placing a 
response on the student's din- 
ing hall bulletin board. 

Gurr takes great pride in not- 
ing, "Staff work to implement 

these suggestions. In fact, stu- 
dents give us most of the ideas for 
treats and special meals." But, 
Gurr notes, he is "not above 
stealing a good idea from just 
about anybody." 

Because of the dialogue be- 
tween students and food service 
staff, the annual midnight break- 
fast began six years ago. The 
breakfast, served from midnight 
to 9:00 a.m. the day before final 
exams, includes scrambled eggs, 
Danish pastries, cereals and as- 
sorted fruits and beverages. And, 
again because of a suggestion, 
students receive treats, such as 
cookies and milk, to take back to 
their rooms during exams. 

Yet, the food service staff con- 
sider the "monotony breakers" 
and the special dinners their real 
link to students. "The students 
face the same food, in the same 
place, at the same time, day after 
day after day," emphasizes Gurr. 
"We try to break the monotony by 
providing special treats. These 
treats and the 27 special dinners 
we serve each board year are 
partially paid for by our catering 

As caterers, food service staff 
have been asked to provide food 
for as many as twenty different 
activities in one day. Again, Gurr 
says, the students do most of the 
work; "we can only plan." 
Gurr mentions with pride the 
formal dinner for 500 at the 
Mosque. He says, "We had 
carved prime rib and eight ban- 
quet lines. We served wine and 
used the white linen, good china 
and stemware. And 100 percent of 
the waiters and waitresses were 
students." According to Gurr, it 
was a "classic example" of what 
can be accomplished when stu- 
dents and staff work together. He 
also notes that leftovers from the 
catering activities go on the stu- 
dent line or students may have 
the same dishes because "it's as 
easy to make 2,000 desserts as it is 

The average student board meal 
has at least three entrees, two 
vegetables, a 21-item salad bar, 
five desserts, two ice cream 
flavors and 11 beverages. Addi- 
tionally, meals are prepared to 
meet individual student health 


needs, a vegetarian's needs or 
to help a student who wants 
to lose weight. In all, the food 
service uses two semi-trucks of 
food each week. 

Each meal is prepared a little at 
a time, so that the food is as fresh 
as possible. Gurr says, "We have 
only 20 percent of the meal 
prepared when the doors to the 
dining halls open. We believe in 
progressive cooking, because you 
can't cook everything and then 
hold it. Things loose their flavor." 
This progressive cooking creates 
problems, since the food line 
must have the same food selec- 
tions throughout the meal. There- 
fore, staff monitors the student 
meals and decides cooking needs 
approximately every 15 minutes. 
This reduces waste to less than 
three-fourths of one percent, with 
leftovers being served the next 

The food service staff advocates 
that students start with small or med- 
ium size portions and come back for 
second or third helpings. Students 
can eat all they want of any item 
except on steak night, when 
each student is limited to 
one eight ounce top sirloin. 

These steak nights 
rotate Monday through 
Thursday, so all 
students have a 
chance to attend 

but the students favorite meals 
are the special dinners. 

These meals usually follow a 
holiday theme, such as Christmas 
when wassail is served, but also 
reflect national themes, with the 
favorite event last year being 
Oktoberfest. It was so popular 
that students would not leave the 
dining hall. Gurr is quick to point 
out that the "Student's Favorite 
Golden Beverage," which caused 
the problem, will no longer be 
served in a confined area. The 
beverage — beer — has been rele- 
gated to outdoor activities, such 
as picnics or concerts. 

The food service staff loves to 
compete with itself in throwing 
bigger and better bashes for the 
students. Last January, the annual 

indoor picnic was held. Red and 
white gingham table cloths were 
used, fried chicken, potato salad, 
baked beans and all the usual 
picnic trimmings including 
ants — eight inch cardboard 
ants — filled the dining hall. The 
event also included a pile of sand, 
bathing beauties and Beach Boy 
music, which was provided by the 
student radio station. "The stu- 
dents loved it," says Gurr. "These 
activities make them feel im- 

On a smaller scale, the staff 
breaks the monotony of going 
through the cafeteria line by 
providing a glass of cold punch to 
students as they enter the dining 
halls or by letting students whip 
up their own ice cream sundaes. 
But the best monotony breaker, 
according to the students at 
"Mama Hibbs," is Mr. Ben 
Schaefer, the 80-year old door 
checker. Ben, as he is called by 
everyone, loves a joke and is so 
involved with the students that he 
and his wife were the official host 
and hostess of the senior dance 
last year. 

The food service staff, through 

special dinners and monotony 
breakers, works to make the 
690 consecutive board meals 
pleasurable, and Gurr says, 
"This year, it will be even 
better." § 

What DoYou Want To Be? 

"All too many people thirty-five 
to forty years old still don't know 
what they want to be when they 
grow up," explains Dr. Ralph C. 
Wiggins, Jr., counseling psychol- 
ogist. "Few of us received any 
instruction in occupational 
decision-making or career plan- 
ning during our school years 
when we needed it most." 

Wiggins, a career-changer at 
age thirty-six, first became con- 
cerned with this special problem 
while recruiting employees for a 
General Electric plant in Philadel- 
phia. Later, after working as an 
executive search consultant, he 
decided to return to school to earn 
a doctorate in counseling psy- 
chology. "My aim," he says, "was 
to prepare myself fully and be 
professionally qualified to work 
with midlife career changes." 

Wiggins is the director of the 
Midlife Counseling Service at 
the university and supervises two 
graduate assistants and four 
doctoral candidates, all in coun- 
seling psychology, who actually 
counsel the clients. 

The counseling begins with an 
initial interview to determine the 
extent of the client's problem and 
to "just get acquainted." The 
client's questions are answered 

Dr. Ralph C. Wiggins, Jr., director, and Peter Zucker, assistant director, discussing 
a client's test results. 

and a determination is made as to 
whether the person's problem fits 
into the general counseling 
emphasis of the service. Persons 
who have a problem too severe 
to be dealt with on a short term 
basis are referred to a service 
more appropriate to their needs. 
Counseling techniques em- 

ployed by the staff may include an 
imaginary journey into the future. 
Wiggins explains that a person is 
asked to visualize where they 
want to be in ten years. . . 

"Close your eyes for a minute. 
Take a couple of deep breaths. 
Relax. Try to let go. Be as 


comfortable as you can. Now, I'd 
like for you to visualize yourself, 
let's say, ten years from now. 
Keep your eyes closed and look 
around. Where are you? What are 
you doing? In what setting? What 
kind of people are you working 

"Now think about that ten year 
period. How did you get from 
where you are today to where you 
visualize yourself? What were 
some of the major turning points? 
Major obstacles? Major crises? 
How did you work these 

The thirty-three year old nurse, 
who hates her job, contemplates 
this future. She begins to realize 
that her ideal job must allow her 
control over her work situation. 

"What a person is doing is 
translating their own values, ap- 
titudes and interests into occupa- 
tional terms," says Wiggins. 

The counselors then assist per- 
sons dissatisfied with their pres- 
ent careers in formulating occu- 
pational objectives and an "action 
plan." To do this the counselors 
introduce people to themselves. 
This is accomplished through the 
counseling as well as through a 
battery of psychological tests. 

Clients also learn how to make 
decisions. They are given basic 
rules on how to decide between 
two equally attractive options and 
will learn to choose the option 
that takes them the farthest in the 
shortest most economical way. "A 
person learns to pick the option 
that allows the most flexibility," 
says Wiggins. "Further, every 
person looks for an option that 
provides an escape route — a way 
to side step to another path. No 
one should ever feel trapped." 

Peter Zucker, assistant director 
of the service and in his third year 
of doctoral work in counseling, 
states, "The service must be used 
by the client. A client has to work. 
The counseling doesn't allow for a 
'they will take care of me' at- 
titude. A person only gets out 
what they put in." 

The service handles up to 
seventy-five clients per year with 
no one accepted on a walk-in 
basis. But persons who express an 
interest have their initial interview 
within one to two weeks after 
contacting the service. 

Wiggins estimates that most 
clients need eight to ten counsel- 
ing sessions, and modest fees for 
testing and counseling are 
charged on a sliding scale, from 
$3 to $25 an hour, depending on 
current income and the number of 

Wiggins states that people 
spend more hours working than 
in any other activity; therefore, 
job related stress, including men- 
tal and emotional problems, has 
more direct impact on a person 
than stress caused by other 
sources. "The need for this type 
of service has been documented. 
A longitudinal study, which was 
begun in the 1940s, followed 
liberal arts school graduates for 
twenty years. Only 20 percent 
were able to say they were 
completely happy with their 
positions, and 70 percent had 
major career crises. 

Careers do not exist in a vac- 
uum; they mesh with other as- 
pects of life. "We have a reputa- 
tion," Wiggins notes, "for han- 
dling career changes, but over 50 
percent of our clients work on 
other problems." 

Some problems, such as the 
need to "chatter to fill silence," 
having thoughts that are not 
adaptive, or having a poor social 
life, affect the client and the job. 
The client is assisted in recogniz- 
ing these problems, figuring out 
why they exist and learning how 
to control the situation. 

One man, a teacher, lost several 
teaching jobs and wanted help 
with a career change. He was very 
difficult to understand, because 
he only spoke in fragmented 
thoughts and abstract terms. As a 
result of the counseling, he rec- 
ognized this problem, worked on 
his communication skills and 
eventually accepted another 
teaching position. 

"We help people deal with 
obstacles, which hinder them 
from reaching their full poten- 
tial," says Zucker. "We identify 
the problem, and then we work 
with the client to remove it." 

Wiggins continues, "We are 
amazed at the changes that take 
place in clients after the sessions. 
Some personality changes are of a 
magnitude only thought possible 
after having long term 

psychotherapy. Much of this can 
be attributed to the fact that our 
counselors are highly competent. 
Also, both client and counselor 
know that within one semes- 
ter they must focus on a goal 
which can be met. We must 
always be realistic m terms of 
time, but the knowledge that one 
has a short time to work on a 
problem causes people to work 
hard, and they solve that prob- 

A midlife career change is frus- 
trating, with people worrying 
about a salary decrease, starting 
on the bottom and the effect on 
their family. Also, there is no 
question, according to Wiggins, 
that "it can be more difficult for a 
person at or beyond midlife to 
find employment. For job hunting 
the magic age is forty. Anyone 
over forty has a harder time, but 
he also has skills and maturity 
that come from experience." 

One way to change careers is to 
capitalize on experience and 
maturity. "A person does not 
have to throw away the past to 
start over," emphasizes Wiggins. 

People must make decisions 
about what is really important to 
them. Is earning as much money 
as you can or getting a sense of 
satisfaction out of life more im- 

"Whether a person decides to 
keep his present job or start a new 
career is something the person 
must decide for himself," notes 
Wiggins. "We simply help people 
clarify their own values so they 
can make responsible choices for 

The service stops short of 
working as a job placement 
bureau. The client "finds" the 
right job and then works his 
action plan to obtain that job. "A 
client is never terminated until 
this job hunting plan of action has 
been written and the first, second 
or third steps of that plan taken," 
says Zucker. "We start the client 
off and insure that he cannot 

"The Midlife Counseling Ser- 
vice," Wiggins says, "onlv helps 
people make decisions. Their ac- 
tion plans allow them to continue 
to make 'best choices' and find 
the position which is right for 
them." S

Investing in the Future 

Richard C. Atkinson, director of 
the National Science Foundation, 
presented the address at commence- 
ment exercises May 18, 1980. Also at 
these exercises, Atkinson was 
awarded an honoranj Doctor of Sci- 
ence degree by the universiti/. He has 
been a master of many trades — 
experimental psychologist, educator 
and administrator, and he is known 
for his research on memory and his 
contributions to the development of a 
computer-controlled system of in- 
struction. His appointment as director 
ofN.S.F. shozvs his versatility, since 
he is the first social scientist to head 
the foundation . 

Following is an abbreviated version 
of the address he delivered at com- 
mericement exercises. 

You, who are part of the 
Richmond community, have rea- 
son to be proud of this university. 
The university's progress in the 
few years since being consoli- 
dated in its present form reflects 
both the excellence of higher 
education in the Commonwealth 
of Virginia and a recognition of 
the important role a major univer- 
sity plays in an urban center. In 
fact, VCU's innovative develop- 
ment of adult and continuing 
education programs — with more 
than a third of its students en- 
rolled on a part-time basis — 
indicates that this university is in 
the forefront of higher education. 

It's expected that a commence- 
ment speaker contemplate the 
future, and I will indeed share 
some thoughts with you about 
that subject. But we should realize 
that there is really no way for us 

to know what lies ahead. A look 
at the past should convince us of 
our inability to predict the future. 
I am sure there are people in this 
audience — parents or grand- 
parents — who marvel at how the 
world has changed since they 
left school. Consider the changes 
seen by someone who started 
a career 50 years ago — and a 
half century, by the way, is your 
expected working lifetime. We 
now accept as commonplace 
space exploration, heart pacemak- 
ers, communication satellites, la- 
sers, antibiotics, televisions and 
stereos, the polio vaccine, com- 
puters and hand-held electronic 
calculators. These are examples of 
high technology that few would 
have anticipated a half century 

And let's not ignore some less 
glamorous but equally significant 
changes in the same 50-year 
period: rural electrification, 
superhighways, synthetic fibers, 
air travel and supermarkets. 

Knowledge has taken enormous 
leaps forward, ever since this 
graduating class was born. In the 
last 20 years, we have learned in 
exquisite detail how the molecules 
of living things are constructed — 
and this information is leading to 
far-reaching medical advances 
and new biological industries. We 
are indeed in the midst of a 
revolution in knowledge. As 
further examples let me throw out 
a few terms: quasars, pulsars, 
quarks, superconductivity, holo- 
grams, plate tectonics, fuel cells, 
nitrogen fixation, nuclear fusion, 
genetic engineering — all represent 

monumental advances in knowl- 
edge, virtually unanticipated 20 
years ago. 

The lesson is clear. The tempo 
of discovery continues to increase. 
We generate new knowledge — 
and use it for practical 
purposes — at an ever increasing 
pace. As breathtaking as the last 
20 to 50 years have been, you can 
be sure that the next 50 — your 50 
years — will bring even more pro- 
found changes. Knowledge — both 
humanistic knowledge and sci- 
entific knowledge — is opening 
new vistas that can only be dimly 
perceived at this time. What is 
clear is that the resources for a 
truly free and open society are at 
hand if we have the good sense to 
manage them wisely. 

But how wise are we in the 
management of our resources? 
You may make your own judg- 
ments about our management of 
such resources as fossil fuel, food, 
water, industrial raw materials, 
and even clean air. What I would 
like to talk about today is the 
management of our scientific re- 

In a sense, science is the 
ultimate resource, one that can 
help us compensate for the mate- 
rial resources we lack. Science has 
the potential for dealing with 
future problems, but only if we 
commit the necessary funds and 
use them wisely. Yet at this 
critical juncture in our history, the 
United States is in danger of 
mismanaging this most vital of all 
its resources. 

It is my thesis that this nation's 
commitment to science is not as 
strong as it should be, or even as 


Knowledge — both humanistic knowledge and 
scientific knowledge — is opening new vistas that can 
only be dimly perceived at this time. 

strong as it was a decade ago. In 
making this remark, I am voicing 
an opinion similar to the one 
expressed by President Carter. He 
has repeatedly called for a 
strengthening of the nation's sci- 
entific effort. 

Given the President's strong 
support for research, why am I 
less than optimistic about the 
prospects for science in the 
United States today? To give you 
a feeling for my concerns, let me 
examine some trends in the sup- 
port of science during the last ten 
years. During this period, re- 
search and development as a 
fraction of the federal budget has 
decreased 36 percent, with basic 
research decreasing 21 percent. 

Along these same lines research 
and development and basic re- 
search decreased 17 percent and 
16 percent respectively as a frac- 
tion of the gross national product. 

And scientists and engineers 
engaged in research and de- 
velopment as a fraction of the 
labor force decreased 9 percent. 

Finally, investment by U. S. 
industry in basic research as a 
fraction of net sales is down 29 

Note that much of the industrial 
research in recent years has been 
directed toward meeting regula- 
tory and environmental require- 
ments rather than the develop- 
ment of new products. 

Relations between indicators of 
this type and the long-range 
prospects for science can be mis- 
leading. Other people can and do 
point to different indicators and 

conclude that all is well. For 
example, it is true that there are 
more scientists and engineers 
employed in the U. S. today than 
ever before. And the federal 
investment in basic research has 
increased significantly in the last 
several years and is now slightly 
above the 1968 high in constant 
dollars. But neither of these mea- 
sures take into account the in- 
creasing population of the United 
States, tougher competition in 
international trade and the greater 
needs our society has for the 
products of research. 

It is an interesting exercise to 
trade off one set of statistics 
against another to make the case 
for or against the adequacy of 
support for science. To emphasize 
this point, here are examples of 
trends in other countries for the 
same ten-year period. 

As I indicated, research and 
development as a fraction of our 
GNP has dropped 16 percent 
from 1969 to 1979. In contrast, it 
has gone up about 14 percent in 
the Soviet Union, 15 percent in 
West Germany, and 16 percent in 
Japan. Further, scientists and en- 
gineers engaged in research and 
development as a percentage of 
the labor force dropped 9 percent 
in the United States from 1969 to 
1979. Contrast this with an in- 
crease of 60 percent in the Soviet 
Union, an increase of 75 percent 
in West Germany and an increase 
of about 70 percent in Japan. 

I want to emphasize that the 
United States is still in the lead in 
most areas of science. What these 
comparisons show is that several 

other countries are moving up 
rapidly to challenge our leader- 
ship. Moreover, virtually all of the 
West German and Japanese re- 
search is concentrated in the 
civilian sector, whereas in the 
United States more than half of 
our research and development is 
for defense. Therefore, we should 
not be surprised by the industrial 
payoffs West Germany and Japan 
are reaping from their research 

In light of these trends it's 
interesting — and more than a little 
discouraging — to look at changes 
in productivity between 1969 and 
1979. In West Germany 
productivity — output per worker 
hour — increased by about 60 per- 
cent. In Japan it increased by 
about 70 percent, but in the 
United States it increased only 24 
percent. It is my belief that the 
research investments made by 
West Germany and Japan in the 
sixties and seventies have con- 
tributed significantly to their in- 
creasing productivity. Don't mis- 
understand these statistics. On 
the average, the U. S. worker is 
still the most productive in the 
world. But the difference is di- 
minishing, and in some industries 
we are already far behind the 

West Germany and Japan are 
outstanding examples of countries 
that have grasped the central 
importance of science to a modern 
society. But thev are not alone. I 
have alreadv referred to the in- 
creased level of science invest- 
ments in the So\iet Union. These 


I can tell you with the utmost conviction' that 

our society and our world, more than ever before, 

will reward those who can adapt to change — 

those who will continue to think, to learn, to 

develop new skills, and to be imaginative. 

increases are the result of a 
deliberate shift that has taken 
place in the thinking of Soviet 
political theorists. 

A new concept of social change 
has developed in the Soviet 
Union, which the Russians refer 
to as the scientific-technological 
revolution. The basic premise of 
the scientific-technological revolu- 
tion is that the advancement of 
knowledge is the principal source 
of societal change. In this regard 
let me note that the Soviet Union 
now has more than twice as many 
scientists and engineers engaged 
in R & D than does the United 

Recent statements by the 
leadership of the People's Repub- 
lic of China have endorsed a 
similar position. These statements 
signal China's determination to 
rebuild its scientific enterprise 
following the deliberate disrup- 
tions that occurred during the 
period of the so-called Gang of 
Four. I have visited China several 
times in my role as director of 
NSF to discuss scientific and 
scholarly exchanges between our 
two countries. Those visits con- 
vinced me that the Chinese 
leadership appreciates the role of 
science in a modern society — and 
understands that they will not be 
successful if their scientific efforts 
are dominated by concerns for 
immediate applications. 

At a time when other nations 
have been increasing their em- 
phasis on science, the United 
States has been pulling back. I'm 
not going to try to enumerate the 
reasons for this, but I believe we 

have reached a critical point 
where our nation is in danger if 
the trends of the last ten years 
persist into the future. When one 
looks at both the Federal and 
private sectors, our greatest re- 
treat in the overall support of 
research and development has 
been in the area of basic 
research — that is, research that 
has no immediate practical appli- 
cation but is directed toward 
increasing our knowledge. It's 
easy to invest in activities where 
the payoffs are immediate and 
clearly discernible, but the big 
breakthroughs in the future are 
going to depend more and more 
on basic research. And it's pre- 
cisely in this area that our com- 
mitment has been most severely 

Because there is no clear link 
between research and subsequent 
applications, such research is sus- 
pect in the minds of many and an 
easy target for sensational news- 
paper stories on the frivolous 
waste of taxpayer dollars. But 
nothing could be further from the 
truth. Take, for example, the 
laser. In the 1960s it was a newly 
discovered phenomenon in the 
scientist's laboratory which ap- 
peared to have no practical value. 
An interesting toy for the scien- 
tists to play with, but shouldn't 
they have been spending their 
Hme on something more useful? 
The intervening years have an- 
swered that question. Now the 
laser is being applied with star- 
tling success to such diverse fields 
as eye surgery, videodisc players, 
satellite communications, and the 

production of energy by nuclear 
fusion. And almost daily a new 
application is announced. 

Studies of major technological 
innovations point out the critical 
role of basic research. These 
studies have examined innova- 
tions like the heart pacemaker, 
the Xeroxing process, oral con- 
traceptives and hybrid grains and 
have identified the key events 
that led to the innovation. To 
almost everyone's surprise over 
70 percent of these key events 
depended on basic research — 
research which at the time it was 
being done had no anticipated 
relationship to the eventual inno- 

Trace studies of this sort docu- 
ment the long-term payoffs asso- 
ciated with basic research. In 
addition, during the last ten years 
a wide array of economic studies 
have examined the relationship 
between research and economic 
growth. I won't review these 
studies here, but to varying de- 
grees they all point to the same 
conclusion. Simply stated, if the 
United States wants to accelerate 
economic progress and increase 
productivity, then an incremental 
investment in research is one of 
the best — if not the best — 
investment that can be made. 

We refer, and rightfully so, to 
Federal support for research as an 
investment in the future because 
we do expect a long-term return 
to society from those expendi- 
tures. But government can also 
make indirect investpients 
through policies that permit tax 


credits for research-related busi- 
ness expenses. For example, 
Japan provides tax writeoffs for 
research and development on a 
sliding scale that rewards in- 
creases in investment from year to 
year. West Germany's incentives 
include accelerated depreciation 
for plant and equipment devoted 
to research, allowances for corpo- 
rate support of research organiza- 
tions, and higher deductions for 
investments related to research. 
We can learn from the experiences 
of these other countries. I hope 
that we will not delay too long in 
reconsidering our own country's 
tax treatment of research. 

As a nation we now face some 
hard economic decisions. Many of 
the economic policy choices we 
make today are likely to shape our 
society for years to come. It is 
clear to me that the long-term 
well-being of this nation con- 
tinues to be tied, through science 
and technology, to the innova- 
tiveness and productivity that 
have traditionally characterized 
the U. S. economy. It is just as 
clear that we must continue to 
support that progress through a 
solid, stable base of research. 

Just as steady support for sci- 
entific research is one of the best 
investments we can make in our 
nation's future, so time spent in 
education is one of the best 
investments an individual can 
make in his or her personal 
future. And the two are directly 
related. Rapid technological and 
social change engendered by new 
knowledge demands that indi- 
viduals continue to learn if they 
hope to participate fuUy in tomor- 
row's world. 

I am convinced that education 
will continue to be a critically 
important activity for you gradu- 
ates all of your Uves. Few of you 
will hold the same job throughout 
your lifetime, and I doubt that 
many will even pursue the same 
profession or business career from 
beginning to end. The pace of 
change has become so rapid for 
your generation that the ability to 
learn — a skill sharpened here at 
VCU — -will prove to be more 
important than the actual content 
of what you've learned during 
your university career. S

For this season, the Rams have 
six returning players — starters 
Monty Knight and Edmund 
Sherod in the back court and 
Danny Kottak and Greg McCray 
in the forward posts. 

Greg Shropshire, a sophomore, 
may fill in for Knight, if he is 
unable to recover from knee 
surgery. Barnett says, "Shrop- 
shire is an excellent shooter and I 
feel he will be a much improved 
player by our first game. He is

The Rams have six newcomers. 
These players have impressive 

Nathan Eley, a 6-7, 185-lb. 
forward, who played at Warwick 
High School in Newport News, 
averaged 17 points and 9 re- 
bounds a game. He was selected 
as All District as a junior and 
senior and as All Regional last 

Another forward, Daniel 
Faison, 6-6, 190-lb., starred 
at Barton High School in Barton, 
Florida. Faison made All County 
three years and All State the last 
two. He averaged 25 points and 
11 rebounds as he helped his 
team to a 19-10 record last year. 

Averaging 13 points, 14 re- 
bounds and 5 blocked shots a 
game for Camden High School, 
Camden, New Jersey, Donald 
Jones started every high school 
game and helped his team to a 
25-4 record and the state title. 

Jones, a 6-8, 205-lb. forward, 
according to Barnett, is "extra 

quick, has unusual jumping 
ability and is a very good 

At center position, Barnett has 
recruited Jim Turns, from Harris- 
burg, Pennsylvania. Turns aver- 
aged 15 points and 14 rebounds 
per game as a senior, helping lead 
Central Dauphise East High 
School to a 30-4 record. He was 
selected to the Harrisburg Pa- 
triot's All-Central Pennsylvania 
team and to his All District team. 

A guard who played for Fork 
Union Academy, Stanley Davis at 
6-3, 165-lb. has also signed with 
the Rams. Davis helped Fork 
Union to a 25-1 record last year 
and averaged 15 points per game. 

"Davis is a tremendous 

athlete," says Barnett. "He is 
quick, agile and has the potential 
to do great things at VCU."

Did \bu Know... 

The Teeth Were Heard 

A dozen examples of devices 
used between 1840 and the late 
1960s to aid the hard-of-hearing 
individual are on permanent dis- 
play at the Tompkins-McCaw 

One of the most ingenious 
hearing aids, used in the late 
1800s, looks like a black fan. It is 
made of a flexible, yet hard, 
rubber and was held against the 
upper teeth. The user bent the 
"fan" by pulling at cords attached 
to the bottom, thus placing the 
rubber under some tension. The 
fan became in essence a tension 
membrane and collected sound 
vibrations, which were transmit- 
ted to the upper teeth. These 
vibrations were then conducted 
via bone to the inner ear. 

The collection was given to the 
library by Mr. S. James Cutler, 
professor emeritus of otolaryngol- 
ogy, who for 25 years was director 
of audiology. 

Cutler says he acquired the 
devices from various sources and 
originally used them for demon- 
strations at lectures to medical 
students and laymen's groups. 

Included in the collection is a 
telescoping ear trumpet, which is 
more than ten inches long, but is 
capable of being collapsed to

there is a "speaking tube," with 
one end going in the user's ear

The collection also has a 
homemade ear trumpet, a "Lon- 
don dome," which is a bell 
resonator about the size of a tea 
leaf container, a pearl necklace

electric hearing aids and modern 
transistorized devices. 


Another "Middletown" 

Black Middletown, a three-year 
study getting under way, will 
cover considerations that Robert 
and Helen Lynd left out of their 
classic work, Middletown. 

In August, another study of 
Muncie, Indiana — the 
"Middletown" of the Lynds' 
landmark work — began. 
The new survey is to be con- 
ducted by the sociology depart- 
ment of the University of Virginia, 
with Dr. Rutledge M. Dennis, an 
assistant professor of sociology at 
VCU, as principal investigator. 

Blacks total about 8,000 of Mun- 
cie's 80,000 residents. This will be 
the first comprehensive study 
made of them, according to Den- 
nis, who is co-author with 
Charles Jarmon oi Afro- Americans: 
A Social Sciej-ice Perspective. He said 
social scientists know little about 
the nature of black populations in 
medium-sized cities in the na- 
tion's Middle West. 

Why the collaboration between 
the University of Virginia at 
Charlottesville and Virginia 
Commonwealth University in 

The impetus for the study came 
from Dr. Vivian Gordon, associate 
professor of sociology at U.Va., 
who had talked with Dennis 
about the Lynds' work, and was 
familiar with some of his earlier 
work along the lines of the 1899 
classic by W.E.B. Du Bois, The 
Philadelphia Negro. They discussed 
the idea with Dr. Theodore Cap- 
low; whose work on Middletown 
III is still current, it seemed a 
propitious time for a study of 
Muncie's black population. It also 
made sense, in view of Caplow's 
work, for U.Va. to seek the NIMH 

Among the facets of the study 
that Dennis expects to find in- 
teresting is the motivation for 
migration. Blacks in the 1920s and 
later responded to the push-pull 
factor — they were pushed out of 
the South by poverty and racial 
discrimination; they were pulled 
by the promise of the northeast- 
ern and north-central states. 

"I've talked with 20 citizens, 
and they were very enthusiastic. 

happy to participate," the coor- 
dinator said. 

Perhaps they share Dennis' 
feeling that Muncie, one of the 
most-studied communities in the 
world, needs yet another study to 
complete the picture. 

Questioning the Test 

"Virginia has joined other states 
as part of the national movement 
to test competency," says Dr. 
James H. McMillian, assistant pro- 
fessor of educational studies. 
"This competency testing is to 
find out how well a child is 
educated during his schooling, 
but it doesn't test how much the 
child has learned. It only tests 
what the child knows. 

"The competency testing is now 
required for students to graduate 
from high school. If a student 
does not show minimum compe- 
tency, he is only awarded a 
certificate of attendance." 

The test, has no grade level 
equivalent, and the Virginia 
school board decided the 
minimum skills necessary for 
graduation from high school. Mr. 
Donald S. Sale, of the State 
Department of Education testing 
program, notes that a student 
needs 70 percent of the answers 
to pass, but over 95 percent of 
the Virginia ninth graders can 
achieve a passing score. 

McMillian says, a trend has 
started, which requires schools to 
"get back to the basics" and 
insure that students have learned 
these basics. But, he adds, that 
since 1975 when standards started 
becoming tougher the number of 
drop-outs has doubled.

"Cleaning up" Membranes 

Cell membranes which transmit 
impulses between nerve fibers can 
be taken apart and put back 
together again, according to Dr. 
Marino Martinez-Carrion, chair- 
man of the biochemistrv depart- 

The importance is that these 
membranes, formed from isolated 
compounds of fish tissue, func- 
tion normally even though thev 
have been simplified bv removing 
some of their microscopic parts. 
This is the first time such an 
attempt to simplif\' and reconsti- 
tute cell membranes has been 


successful, and the "cleaning up" 
of membranes will be useful in 
research efforts. 

This ability to study cell mem- 
branes with fewer distracting 
components will allow scientists 
to tell which parts are responsible 
for which actions, says 
Martinez-Carrion. This could 
have important implications for 
the study of certain diseases, 
particularly nerve-muscle disor- 

Kapp Lecture 

Nobel prize-winning chemist 
William Nunn Lipscomb, Jr., de- 
livered the fourth annual Mary E. 
Kapp Lecture in Chemistry. 

Dr. Lipscomb won the Nobel 
prize in chemistry in 1976 for his 
work with a group of chemical 
compounds called boranes. Since 
then Dr. Lipscomb's research has 
shifted emphasis to the study of 
enzymes — complex proteins 
found in all living cells which 
speed up biochemical reactions 
essenhal to life. 

Dr. Lipscomb, a physical 
chemist and a professor at Har- 
vard University, talked about his 
current research at the lectureship 
established in honor of Dr. Kapp, 
professor of chemistry emerita. 

Dr. Kapp was chairman of the 
chemistry department until her 
retirement in 1972. 

A New Dean 

Dr. Elske van Panhuys Smith 
has been named dean of the 
School of Arts and Sciences. 

Just prior to accepting the posi- 
tion at VCU, she was the assistant 
vice-chancellor for academic af- 
fairs at the University of Maryland 
at College Park, which she joined 
in 1963 as an associate professor 
of astronomy. 

Widely published as a research 
astronomer. Dr. Smith has con- 
ducted observations at the Sac- 
ramento Peak Observatory in 
Sunspot, New Mexico, where she 
worked for seven years, and also 
at the Lowell Observatory in 
Flagstaff, Arizona. Additionally, 
she has been a visiting fellow at 
the Joint Institute for Laboratory 
Astrophysics in Boulder, Col- 

She is now serving a three-year 
term on the American Astronomi- 
cal Society's governing board to 
which she was elected in 1977 and 
is a consultant to NASA, the 
National Science Foundation, and 
a charter member of the National 
Climate Program Advisory Com-, 

Outpatient Grant 

The Robert Wood Johnson 
Foundation of Princeton, New 
Jersey, has granted MCV Hospi- 
tals and the School of Medicine 
$800,000 for a four-year program 
to improve the health care of 
patients and the training of gen- 
eral physicians. 

The award is one of 15 an- 
nounced by the foundation, 
which gave a total of $12 million 
in similar grants to clinics, in- 
cluding those at Yale, Tufts, John 
Hopkins University, University of 
North Carolina, Vanderbilt Uni- 
versity, University of California 
and Georgetown University. 

For 10,000 Virginians whose 
primary health care is provided by 
the A. D. Williams clinics, the 
grant will make waiting lines 
shorter or non-existent, insure 
seeing the same doctor at each 
visit and provide a highly trained 
faculty physician to closely super- 
vise the care of each patient. 

An Echo 

James D. Pendleton, associate 
professor of English, has won his 
second consecutive Eugene 
O'Neill award for television 

His play "Echoes" will be in- 
cluded in the 1980 New Drama for 
Television Project at Waterford, 
Connecticut, home of the Eugene 
O'Neill Memorial Theater Center. 
A total of four plays were chosen 
from over 1,500, and they will be 
produced this summer at the 
center and later be made avail- 
able to television networks. 

"Echoes," set at the seashore at 
the end of summer, explores the 
relationships between sons, 
fathers and grandfathers. "The 
echo effect of these emotional 
relationships is what I'm con- 
cerned with," said Pendleton. 

His new play is about a 
middle-aged man who in spite of 
apparent success is forced into a 

critical evaluation of his own life 
in trying to determine why his 
son has had certain problems. 
With generations of guilt echoing 
within him, the man discovers his 
own unconscious complicity in 
the sufferings of those who have 
lived close to him. He is then 
faced with deciding how to live 
the rest of his life. 

CETA Honored 

The Comprehensive Training 
and Employment Act (CETA) 
Staff Development Program was 
honored as the first recipient of 
the Governor's Employment and 
Training Council Program Opera- 
tion Award for outstanding con- 
tributions to the development of 
CETA programs. 

The VCU program, which 
began in 1976, is responsible for 
training personnel who work in 
CETA programs to aid un- 
employed or underemployed dis- 
advantaged Virginia residents. 

Last year 2,073 CETA personnel 
participated in VCU staff de- 
velopment programs at locations 
around the state. Seminars and 
workshops included instruction 
on CETA administration, man- 
agement and client service. 

The VCU program, housed in 
the School of Community Ser- 
vices, Center for Public Affairs, 
recently received a $275,000 grant 
to fund a fifth year of services. 

Survey Results 

According to a national survey 
of freshmen college students at 
560 institutions, including VCU, 
three-quarters of the students 
came to college to "learn more 
about things that interest me," 
and to "get a better job," with 
two-thirds indicating they want to 
"gain a general education and 
appreciation of ideas." 

The VCU data indicates that 
about two-thirds of the first-year 
students are women and 16.4 
percent of the students are black, 
and about forty percent of the 
students were optimistic about 
earning at least a "B" average in 

Also, the percentage of VCU 
students who describe themselves 
as liberal has steadily declined 


from 44 percent in 1973 to 26.3 
percent in 1979. Conversely, the 
percentage who describe them- 
selves as conservative has in- 
creased from seven percent in 
1973 to 18.3 percent in 1979, 
according to Dr. William H. 
Duvall, administrator of the sur- 
vey and assistant to the vice- 
president for student affairs.

Happened To... 

A Trainer's Trainer 

"Have you ever heard of the 
homing pigeon instinct? The men 
flock around women trainers 
wanting their ankles taped. At 
times, it's disgusting. I have to 
beat them back," says Sports 
Medicine Director George L. Bor- 
den (B.S. health and physical 
education '75) as he jokes about 
female athletic trainers and male 

Borden sees the humorous or 
bright side of everything. He 
loves his job, and it's obvious. 
Borden is also, according to Dr. 
Virgil R. May, who has been the 
men's basketball team physician 
for seven years, "The best at what 
he does." 

Other people think so, too. 
Borden consults with athletic 
coaches and trainers all over the 
United States, served as trainer 
to the Pan American Games 
and the Conmionwealth Games 
and is the trainer for the Bermuda 
Olympic Team. 

Borden always knew what he 
wanted to do. "I was always 
involved in sports, but I knew I'd 
never reaUy be good. Yet, I 
wanted to stay involved." Borden 
adds, "I saw some youths almost 
crippled, because they hadn't 
seen doctors or didn't continue 
with prescribed therapy; so I 
decided this was what I wanted to 

He began his career by "bug- 
ging" the trainer of the Richmond 
Roadrunners minor league foot- 
ball team into letting him be an 
assistant. Later while a student at 
VCU, he was VCU's part-Hme 
trainer and then the first full-time 

Due to his love of sports 
medicine and his reputation for 
being professional, his first posi- 
tion after graduating was with the 
National Football League's New- 
Orleans Saints. He loved it, but 
due to a lack of job security,

Sports Medicine Director George L. Borden 
and student trainer Brian Bird monitoring 
Monty Knight's performance of isokinetic 
exercises for his injured knee. 

because of the number of coach- 
ing changes, he returned to VCU 
as the athletic trainer and a 
teacher of sports medicine. 

"The curriculum isn't easy. It's 
an in-depth study of the theory of 
movement and includes anatomy, 
physiology, first aid, nutrition, 
exercise and care of athletic in- 
juries," says Borden. This year he 
has eight students, including six 
women, majoring in sports 
medicine, who work with him 
for the VCU teams. 

Borden's major concern, which 
he tries to impress upon his 
students, is the need for proper 
training of the athlete. "In the 
U.S. most coaches only want the 
job done; they're not worried 
about injury until it happens. 
But in Europe a major portion 
of the athlete's time is spent 
training to prevent injury," says 

Sports medicine is hard to 
define. Borden is not a doctor; 
yet, at times, he must make a 
decision about the extent of an 
injury. And he cannot treat a 
patient; yet, he handles the pre- 
scribed treatment. According to 
Dr. John A. Cardea, chairman of 
orthopedic surgery, a trainer edu- 
cates the athlete. The athlete 
learns how energy is stored and 

used, about muscle power, 
kinesiology, cardio pulminary 
stress and fluid and electrolyte 
balance. The trainer not only 
works close with the indiviclual 
athletes, but also with the team 

Borden has also begun working 
with Robert Mangine, instructor 
of physical therapy and an advo- 
cate of sports medicine, to in- 
crease the versatility of the train- 
ing program by bringing in addi- 
tional expertise on the recovery 

The sports medicine field has 
grown dramatically in the past ten 
years, due primarily to the 20 
million Americans who suffer rec- 
reational injuries each year. Part 
of this Borden attributes to what 
he calls the "Peter Pan Syn- 
drome." "A thirty-five or forty- 
year old decides to get in shape 
and expects to work out as he did 
when he was eighteen. Then he 
can't figure out why he hurts. 
Also, a lot of joggers have 
'mileage mania;' they have to 
make a certain number of miles 
regardless of how they feel. It 
becomes an ego thing." 

"It is extremely important that 
George works well with physi- 

cians, and he does," says May. 
"He is trusted and respected by 
all of us. He must know advanced 
emergency medical procedures 
and life saving techniques, be- 
cause someday he might not be 
able to wait for a physician." 
Usually, the trainer is the first 
person to see an athlete after an 
injury, and he uses his eyewitness 
account of the accident to provide 
an accurate history of the occur- 
ence to the attending physician. 

Then, according to May, "a 
trainer must monitor an athlete's 
recovery — neither hinder recovery 
or push too fast — and advise 
athletes on everything from nutri- 
tion to footware. His is an all 
encompassing job. 

"George does it all. He's always 
busy — on the move. And because 
he cares so much, he volunteers 
to train coaches and trainers. He'll 
go anywhere, at anyhme, at any 
hour of the day to see someone 
and take him to the hospital. It's 
his life; he doesn't have time for 
other things," says May. 

Borden not only volunteers his 
time, but also VCU's training 
facility for teams visiting 
Richmond, including the Soviet 
tennis and hockey teams. 

Borden has two goals, one to 
strengthen the sports medicine 


profession by establishing a 
licensing procedure to insure 
quality personnel at all levels of 
sports activities — Little League, 
high school, college, amateur and 

Also he is working with Cardea 
toward the formation of a sports 
medicine center at MCV Hospi- 
tals, as part of the orthopaedic 
department. The clinic would be 
in a designated area of the hospi- 
tal and be equipped to handle 
5,000 visits per year. Services 
would include diagnosis, treat- 
ment and education and would be 
set up to meet individual needs 
and work toward the prevention 
of sports injuries. It would be a 
community place, not just for
